Karine Gonthier-Hyndman (That’s how I love you, Between two sheets) and Laurence Leboeuf (Transplanted) will be the headliners of the film Deux femmes en or, directed by Chloé Robichaud (Happy days, Sarah prefers the race) and written by Catherine Léger (Babysitter, Charlotte has fun) based on her eponymous play presented at the theater.
This is a modern rereading of the erotic comedy by Guy Fournier and Marie-José Raymond, a 1970s success in Quebec cinema which starred Monique Mercure and Louise Turcot. p
This contemporary adaptation tells the daily life of two women, Violette, on maternity leave, and Florence, on sick leave, who decide to free themselves and break the monotony by celebrating feminine desire.
“The themes explored by Catherine Léger really speak to me. She is both funny, but right on target. Women have the right to be themselves and whatever that means to them. I am truly inspired by the freedom that her characters claim,” Chloé Robichaud said in a press release. Mani Soleymanlou and Félix Moati are also part of the cast.
The film will be released in theaters in summer 2025.
